X-Men: Dark Phoenix Review

The end of a long and painful series of average films comes to a close. X-Men: Dark Phoenix is the last film before the inevitable reboot into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The plot is similar to the previous film X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) with Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) fighting with her newfound powers.

The highlight of the film was definitely the cinematic action pieces and music score to accompany it. The use of the camera and slow motion is the best in the whole franchise. Even though it was great action pieces the story development and progression was awful.

The characters had no real motives while the villain was practically useless. The final confrontation felt rushed which left me wondering were the rest of it was.

Overall the franchise goes out with a whimper. I wouldn’t recommend watching it 👎🏻 4.5/10.
